Who can forget Charlize Theron speeding around Europe in a Mini Cooper in the 2003 movie The Italian Job and her recent grungy performance where she drove a huge truck-like contraption in Mad Max: Fury Road.
It comes as no surprise that she’s been selected to play a villain in the Fast and Furious sequel Fast 8.
From the interview with Charlize about the Italian job, you can see that she was determined to give as good as she gets.
“I remember my agent calling me and saying, ‘They want to customize a car for you so that it’s automatic.’ I was like, ‘What is this, like, when you’re a girl, everybody just automatically thinks you drive like crap?’ And by the way, they want you to do two weeks’ extra driving school, separate from the guys. And I was like: I’ll kick their butts.”
And kick their butts is exactly what she did.
